Within . . . .

I knew that if I did not run at top speed I would miss the last flight out of this … this … this damn city.

As I completed O.J. Simpson hurdles over all of the carry on baggage that was in my path I started to realize that I was going to be too late making my connection. It was the last flight out for the night.  I was going to be stuck!

As I passed gate A-17 my eye caught glimpse of …. of …. her. From somewhere deep within, James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” started playing and in that very instant every word was heard.

    LOL @ Oj hurdles. I was expecting the guy to try to cut her head off…just kidding. Good job, Chris

    Very cool…I can feel the breathless desperate dash through the airport (been there!) but I love how he’s brought up short. Good job.

  3. Tara R. says:

    Oooo… I like this imagery. I can see him stopping short to watch this girl, his flight home forgotten.

    I love it. I love how hurried and frenzied he is, then suddenly his world stops — and his brain cues the perfect soundtrack. Sweet.

  5. I have so been there before. Except the part at the end. With the girl and the overly earnest James Blunt in my head. Great job.
